So it's finally Spring - the snow is almost all gone from my yard, and the temperature has been in the 50s. I've been working on some Spring-inspired knitting. First, for my daughter's Easter basket:

Fewer calories than a chocolate bunny, which she's kind of too young for still, but which my husband bought and he and I ate anyway. Hee.

OK, Bunny, you caught us. Free bunny pattern is from HeartStrings. It's basically a sewn-up square!

My knitting group made a wall hanging for the coffee shop that hosts us each Sunday. We each made an 8x8 square and we had a seaming party last weekend. I decided to make a colorful square of granny squares; I had begun the squares thinking I would make my daughter Z the granny square jacket from Candy Tots. Luckily reason set in as the pattern calls for 200 2x2 granny squares. Can you imagine the seaming and ends-weaving for that?? R came along to the party and had a good time, although he looks sullen in the photo.

It was also teacher appreciation month, and the Knitting Room now carries Cotton Chenille, so I made two reverse bloom washcloths for my daughter's teachers:

The pattern is in the book Weekend Knitting. I have one more hank of Cotton Chenille and may make another washcloth for a family member's birthday. Or maybe not, I'm kinda tired of making petals. I'm finishing some socks for my niece, and still working on the cable trim for my sweater, which I now probably won't get to wear until fall. I've also been working on some Secret Knitting, the results of which will be made public shortly.

The "Secret Knitting" has indeed been made public and I love it! What a great felted, striped bag! It's so cute. I can't wait to put a small knitting project in it an tote it around with me.

I don't know how you do it. You must knit in your sleep - or do you even sleep at all? You always have so many projects going on at once and you manage to finish them in time to give to people as gifts! I look up to you, super knitter.

Maybe I'll knit you a cape for your birthday. But I wouldn't finish it in time! :)

Oh, and that bunny is so darned cute in person. You should photo it's tail. It has a very cute rear-end, if I may be so crude to mention.
